My 2001 ford explorer sport will not start

\015 It will crank one time and then make a whiffing noise and then basically stop. i can turn the key again and same thing, so on and so on. does this sound like a fuel pump or starter?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

It doesn't sound like a fuel pump. Probably not the starter either. More likely coolant is getting into the cylinders. This can come from a bad intake manifold gasket or a bad head gasket.

Our 2005 Ford Explorer Sports Trax's battery went dead after the lights being left on. We jumped the battery, but now the anti-theft light is on and will now allow us to start the truck. This happened to us last year and after we paid to have it towed in, it began working without explanation. Our remote is dead and it won't allow our keys to start it. What can we do to get the anti-theft to go off?
